Two doughnut chains with local stores (and, no, neither had the word “Kreme” in their name) were named among the nation’s 21 best doughnuts in a recent AOL CityGuide survey:
5. LaMar’s Donuts -
LaMar’s is a smaller chain with plenty of doughnut shops in the Midwest, Colorado, Alabama and Arizona. The recipes have withstood the test of time and it’s the commitment to the basics, like the signature glazed doughnut, that tastes so good.
14. Daylight Donuts -
“Daylight is quietly becoming an international doughnut powerhouse. What started as a mom and pop outfit in 1954 with Tommy and Lucille Day has turned into 900 stores worldwide, but they don’t grab all of the headlines as KK and DD. Instead, they just focus on perfecting the already perfect doughnut.”
What do you think, fair? Or not?
